hostility with which the premier treat- 
ed that veteran of Liberalism. 

It has been observed that the date 
selected for the general election, Sep- 
tember 31, Is within one -day ot being 
the anniversary of the great Conserva- 
tive victory of 1878. That election took 
place on September 22, so that the day 
after the coming election will be the 
sard anniversary of the triumph of 
the national policy. Coincidences are 
striking throughout. It was a battle of 
protection, of building up of the home 
market against the policy which de- 
cried the home market and looked to 
closer relations with the United States. 
It was held just prior to the advent 
of a member of the royal family to 
RJdeau Hall. Even Sir Wilfrid 
ier's confidence hnds its 
Hon. Alexander Mackenzie expected to 
be embarrassed by the largeness of hla 
majority. >,:•.: -! 

Evidences accumulated that the dis-

ference of economists and historians, 
which marks the tirst extensive steps 
by the permanent bureau of peace in 
m tTHmpatgn against war. began today 
in University Hall. 

The conferees express the belief that 
the meeting will do much toward put- 
Ung the movement for International 
peace on a practical basis. 

The session was opened by Professor 
John Clark, of Columbia university, who 
voiced the thanks of the bureau for 
the peace foundation established by 
Andrew Carnegie. 

Dr. P. O. Phlloppovlch, of the uni- 
veralty of Vienna, was elected presi- 
dent of the bureau. 

Nicholas Murray Butler, president of 
Columbia university outlined the Idea 
of the conference. He laid 'stress on

buKlnes.-* men of Seattle, died tonight 
of ptomaine poisoning caused by eating 
canned mushrooms at a dinner at Ta- 
coma Ttie.sday night. Mr. McLaren was 
taken ill while returning to Seattle from 
Tacoma, and wa.s hurried to a hospital 
as soon as he arrived here. Mr. Mc-

resentatives of the state, war and navy 
departments, and a representative of 
Governor Dix, FoUowlnc a few warm 
words of welcome on behalf of the na- 
tion, the delegation of Americans ac- 
companied the distinguished Japanese 
In a tug to the revenue cutter Seneca, 
standing hard by. A few moments 
later the Seneca was speeding for her 
pier at 23rd street, Hudson river, 
whence Admiral Togo was whisked 
way in an automobile to his hotel. 

Admiral Togo plans to go to Wash- 
ington tomorrow night, where he will 
be received by President Taft. OfHclal 
dinners, visits and sight-seeing tours 
will engage him during the coming 
week. He will return then to New 
York, where two formal functions await 
him. and he will leave here for Boston 
and Canada via Kiasara T^»"s on the 
16th or iTth. He will board the steam- 
er for Japan at Victoria. 

Long before the Cunardcr's blR hulk 
blackened the horizon at Sandy Hook, 
the Seneca was on her way to auaran- 
Une witih the welcoming party aboard. 
The delegation • consisted of Chandler 
Hale; thfrd assistant secretary of state. 
Captain T. M. Potts, of the navy. Major- 
General Frederick D. Gr^nt, commander 
of the military departmeJht of the east. 
Vdjutant-Qeneral Verbeck. national 
guard of New Tork. and attaches of 
the Japanese embassy at Washington. 
These found the admiral waiting to 
receive them when they boarded the 
Lusltanla.' Secretary Hale delivered the 
first message of welcome on behalf of 
President Taft, and was followed by 
others of the deputation. 

Seldom hni? the lower bay witnessed 
BO remarkable a midnight scene. The 
whole ship sat up to bid the admiral 
goodbye. The rails were black with 
his fellow X>aasengers as he stepped 
down the lowered stairway oh the ves- 
BcVs deck, ended by - hearty American 
cheers The first cabin passengers hung 
over the rail and watTIhed his progress 
in the dim light to the Seneca, peering 
Into the gloom until the crackling of 
the cutter's wireless apparatus spread 
the news of his arrival. ^ , 

The admiral's response to hU wel- 
come was almost as Waf as the wel- 
come Itself, 

"Happiness," he said in good Eng-

Democrats and Insurgent Re- 
publicans Pass Cotton Bill 
in House— Talk of Overcom- 
ing Veto 


Sheriffs of Washington State 
in Convention at Vancouver 
Find Fault with State Ad- 

WASHINGTON, Aug. 8.— Supported 
by all the DejnocraU and by thirty 
Ihsurgent Republicans, the Democratic 
cotton tariff bill, the third of the big 
tariff revision measures, brought for- 
ward by the Democratic House of 
Representatives, passed that body 
early this evening, 202 t». *i' ■ 

The bill cuts the average tariff on 
cotton, manufactured, from 48 to 27 
per cent, ad valorem, a 21 per cent, 
reduction. The Democratic leaders es- 
timate that it would reduce the rev- 
enue by about 53,000,000. 

Not an amendment was offered to 
the bill, although the Republicans at- 
tacked tt vigorously on account of al- 
leged Increase In certain Items over 
the rates of the Payne- Aldrlch tariff 

Scarcely had the cheers that greet- 
ed the passage of the cottoji revision 
bill subsided when Democratic Leader 
Underv,-o6d, ciiUing "P P^*>\ ^^ ^'^^ 
blU. as It pasr-ed the senate a few 
days ago, accomplished a strategic 
movement, which surprised the Repub- 

cans. ,, ,1. 

He asked for a coiilerOnce on all the 
amendments to the free list bill ex- 
cept that of Senator Gronna, of North 
Dakota, putting cement on the free 
list. He urged that the House accept 
that amendment, adding to It lemons. 
Pacific coast Republicans made In- 
effectual attempts to stop this sudden 
and unexpected putting of lemons on 
the <ree Ust, but the amendment car- 
ried The change g.ave House Demo- 
crats what they claimed to be an add- 
ed advantage In dealing with the sen- 
ale in the conference tomorrow. 

Tonight the Republican leaders In 
both houses ot congre-ss called in ab- 
sent members from all parts of tho 
countrv, in preparation for a threaten- 
ed attempt of the Democrats to pass 
tlie wool tariff bill over the president's 
veto. The Democratic lo.ader,s in the 
Hmi-e have as-serted within the last 
24 hours that they have the necessary 
two-thirds majority to the wool 
bill over the president'.s veto. They 
have been doing eftcctlve missionary 
work in tlie senate today. The Re- 
publican managers In the House insist 
tonight that they have enough votes 
to prevent the two-thirds majority In 
support of the wool bill. 

Speaker Clark tonight .appointed as 

a conference committee on the free list 

onferees who will act 

Inatcs many reftrlf'Monn from the treaty 
of 1908, assures a means of regula- 
Ung pacifically all differences which 
would be impossible of settlement 
through the channels of diplomacy, and 

"The character of the treaty Is clear- 
ly defined In the preamble thus: 

•• -The French republic and the United 
States of America being equally desir- 
ous of perpetuating firm and Inviolable 
the covenant of peace which, happily, 
has existed between the two nations 
since the first days of American In- 
dependence, and which has been ren- 
dered more sure by close relations of 
friendship and commerce, affirming that 
no important question remains in limi- 
tation between them, and resolved to 
prevent any future diflTerence from be- 
ing an occasion for hostilities or an\ in- 
terruption of these good relations, and 
so f onh.' " _

praiseworthy effort to reduce the 
chances of war, though, as It under- 
stands the text. It does not "ean^ the

at Washington. D. C. arrived in Se- 
attle tonight on his way to Alaska to 
study mining conditions there. 

"My visit to the north," said Dr. 
Holme-s, "has no political slgnlltcance, 
althougih I have been clo.sely identified 
with the conservation movement since 
its early agitation. For the first time j 
in our "history the federal government 
h^!R ..slablished a watch over Alaska 
mining Industries nnd has undertaken 
omclnl protectjon. Sutnmer S. Smith, 
who IS now In .Maskn, where ho is to 
be stationed permanently, was recently 
nppf.inie.l by the president to this work. 
I want to H'^e the mine inspection work 
started right and carried on for the 
bonelit of the mining in.iu.^'ry of AUt.ska. 
"I have been unable to find a think- 
ioK business man in the who want.-.

of thai section «f the country. The 
feeling back there is that Alaska coal 
should first be utilized to benefit Alaska, 
nnd then the Pacific coast. The east has 
hU the coal it needs. Out here you 
need coal for the development of the 
iron and steel industry. You are able 
to manufacture everything In the steel 
and iron line, and good coal in plenty 
would remove il.r Kmatrst r.bstaclc to 

that end." 

Mr. Holmes will leave tomorrow for

en; of botti Motherland parties and

of these the f<enilment is pronouncedly 
adverse, the primary .suspicion as to the

ciprocity proposals having been .Mtrent,--

the exception of a few speclsl Inter-

B«t-4»»h trftd« views the Canadian re- 
ciprocity arrangement as bad commer-

the natural and- desirable development 
of mter-domtnlon imperial com-

The brief mcHsagcs of transmittal to 
the senate were written and signed by 
tilie president today, and tomorrow It 
will He with the United States senato 
to ratify what lia.s lieen termed the 
greatefd step toward the aliolillon of 
war thai the world thus far has taken. 

Alreadj' there ha'v^e been mutlerlnes 
from the .senate over tliese treaties. 
rreHidfnl Tafi is non-committal but 
was anxious to put them before that 
hodv before the aOJournmenI of the 
speclF.l session. 

The ceremony of filKning tlie treatlos 
took place In the presirieiu's library in 
the Wliite House. Numerous treaties. 
Including that helween Si)uin and the 
i;nited Slates, have been .signed in that 
room,, and the ineHsuges of presidents 
and many Important state documents

Little formality attached to.the. pj*?*

deroon of the state department, Osmond 
Ovej'. second secretary of the British 
embasBy; the Viscomte Saint Phallee of 
the Frenche embassy, two members of 
the cabinet, & score of newspapermen 
and three photographers were present. 
The treaty with Great Britain was 
signed at 3.10 this afternoon. Secre- 
tary Knox and Amhassador Bryce 
signed duplicates at tjie same moment. 
1 fhe K'*T»«b treaty was aiKned by Mr. 
Knox one minute later. 

The treaties out of the way. Presi- 
dent Taft took bis place at the desk. 
Before him were laid two messages .to 
the senate. He affixed his name, and 
then, so far as the executive end of 
tJie government Is concerned, the mat- 

ter was concluded.

The Premier was escorted to an open 
.carriage, to which a dashing team of 
four regal greys had been attached, and 
with Dr. Young, Mr. Talt and Mr. R. F. 
Green, was driven to the Parliament 
buildings, the carriage preceded by a 
mounted police escort and by the pipers' 
band. At the doors of parliament an 
improvised platform had been arranged, 
and from this Mr. Talt voiced Victoria's 
welcome in graceful and fitting terms, 
the' Premier responding in an address 
which was characteristically direct and 
informal and In which he expressed his 
appreciation -of his reception, both for 
Mrs. McBrlde and himself, sketched 
deftly the outstanding featurei* of Uie 
great ceremonial from which he has Just 
returned, made due acknowledgment of 
his recognition of th<! excellent work his 
colleagues! In the Cabinet liaVe been ac» 
compUshing in his absence, referred to 
the splendid ,po«IUon which Bl-itlsh Cut 
Itimbla at present holds In the heart of 
the Kmplre, and assured his fellow- 
Victorians that he has come buck to 
them with enhanced pridp in this splen- 
did province and a stronger Briton and 
British Columbian than ever. 

Victoria's reception was notable for 
Its personal note — its spontaneity and 
Its cordiality. It was a gathering of 
I'riends and admirers to welcome a 
leader regarded with sincere personal 
affection as well as pardonable pride. 
And similar characteristics marked 
those other welcoming demonstrations 
along the line of his westward Journey- 
ing and at Vancouver City. Even be- 
fore seven o'clock In the morning yes- 
terday, a repre.«ientatlve concourse of 
Coqultlam residents gathered at Mis- 
sion City and preHented an appropriate, 
axldiess, the more prized by Its recip- 
ient by reason of the fact of this being 
his old constituency and the riding 
which gave him to puWlc life. "Little 
Miss May Qulmby colncldcntly pre- 
.senled Mr.s. McHride with a basket of 
lovely roHos, while Reeve Irvine per- 
formed the honors in voicing (;or|Uitlam'.s 
welcome and Reading the dL-strlct's ad- 
dress. In Vancou\er Ihe .seen, wi.; if..

Zmpressions From Old Ziand.) 

Concerning lii.s recent travels and ex- 
periences, the Premier .says that ho 
ha.s "done his best" to worthily repre- 
.scnt British Columbia at the Imperial 
caijltal, and in connection with the Uile 
entbronctnent of hl.s aUKiist 
Kini; Ceorge. That I., li.i 
ful in eminent di gree 

p,.»niier McBrlde visited UliA*a ar.'- 
was m conference with Mr. Borden ana 
a number of the leadera of the Con- 
servative party of Canada, all of whom 
he found auper-enthuslastle with res- 
pect to the outcome of the elections 
so soon to test the feeling of the peo- 
ple on the cuestlons of reciprocity and 
the record of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's ad- 
ministration. That Sir Wilfrid foutid 
himself in a position no longer to fuHy 
command his following was indicated 
in the abruptness with which the ses- 
sion was terminated, omitting even the 
customary and traditional speech fron. 
the throne. It is indicated too In the 
perturbed conditions In the Liberal 
partv now evidenced In virtually every 
province. Kven in Quebec. Sir Wilfrids 
stronghold and chief dependence, the 
sentiment of the people has seehilngly 
cooled and changed amaitngly of late; 
while In ManJiooB. 5A» s::- 
Alberta the certainty of strong Con- 
servative gains is absolute and gen- 
erally conceded. In British Columbia, 
the provincial leader expects to see Ihe 
widespread dissatlsfai'.tion with tlie' re- 
ciprocity bargain and all that It Im- 
plies ^iX^teA amphatlcally byj the re- 
turn of a solid phalanx of seven Con- 
servative members. 

Regarding the suggestion !n eastern 
Ciinadiah press despatches that he 
might himself be Induced to enter the 
federal arena as a candidate. Premier 
McBrlde remarks that with the keen 
desire evinced by so m.-ny good men 
to win the honor of bearing the party 
standards, there will be abundant and 
excellent parliamentary material to 
select from. He feels that he has still 
much to do for British Columbia In 
rounding out completing the policy 
which he has evolved and developed 
and which la already bearing »0 very 
satisfactory fruit in existing condi- 
tions and prosperity and the assurance 
of even brighter days to come In the 
near future. While he will now throw 
himself heart and soul into the light 
and do all within his admittedly wide 
power to advance Conservative Inter- 
ests in the w^dt. it may. therefore, be 
be prophesied that he will not himself 
seek a Dominion seat. 

That the party will have efficient 
generalship in the returned first min- 
ister none can gainsay, while It Is 'mat- 
t*r fW tinlverwH satisfaction that ho 
was never more fitted for battle, re- 
turning as he does In the perfection of 
health, having accomplished as one 
friend yesterday put It, "the happy 
miracle of growing ten year.s younger 
during hl.« three months' absence."

The certainty of its rapid growth and 
development by reason of the working 
out of th" railway construction pro- 
gramme is universally reeoKnlzed, and 
on every hand discriminating Investors 
and industrial I'widers are manifesting 
the keenest Interest in all that con- 
cerns this province. Very large Invest- 
ments are i)foje<-led and are belnpr made, 
not only by Kroups of England's fore- 
most financiers, but- also Just at pre-

Novel Table Decoration 

"This new section of the show," V.e 
said "will call for special decorated 
deslims on a ^able 30 Inches square. 
This limitation In slae will be coupled 
with an added attraction that will dif- 
fer a wider scope for artistic effort 
than the usual table decoration. It 
will invite designs of any kltid other 
than those called for In the other dec- 
orated sections. It Is hoped to secure 
many novel designs in this way, such 
as tables representing some form ot 
sport— motoring, acroplanlng, tennlH.' 
skating, etc. — or particular nationality. 
In order to encourage competition In 
the Invention of what may be called 
,,. ;._. -...-..iji »_w:,.-. ^»TOi mcctwnlcal 

toys or »ny other accessories can he 
u.sed. excepting plantc in pots. Cut 
flowers mu»t, of course, predominate, 
but these tables will not be Judged by 
their cost or the niMerlal used, btit by 
the originality Of design and artistry 
of effect. The .speplal Judges for this 
new section of the show will be Mt, 
J as. Man ton iind myself. The prizes, 
however, will be awarded by popular 
ballot. Kvery admission ticket sold be- 
tween 2 and « p. m. on the first day 
of the show (AMgUSt l&th). will have 
attached to It a voting coupon. Holders 
of these tickets will be requested to 
mark the flVe best tables in order of 
preference, "The prizes will be awarded 
to those receiving the most votes. 
These five prizes will take the form of 
handsome pieces of oa% . glaps. of n 
total value of $76. fhey Wlil, be ex- 
hibited in Messrs.' TVelWm' windows 
during the coming week." 

Otber New ExhibUs. 

"Another new section will be devoted 
to wedding bouquets. Several up-to-date 
and novel ideas have already been pro- 
mised. The modern "shower" and 
"spray" bouquets are expected to pre- 
dominate In this special section. The 
plant department will b* Unusually 
strong this year. Several of the largest 
growers of flowering and foliage plants 
have alenlfled their intention of exhib- 
iting after several years'- abstention. 
These have every confidence that the 
practical men who have been appointed 
as superintendent and assistant super- 
intendents of the show will be able to

SmaU. heavy golf balls have grown 
popular with players this year. In put- 
ting the heavier ball la better controll- 
ed and a longer flight Is possible in 
driving. The experience of a weU- 
known amateur with the heavier ball 
will prove interc sting to golfers. Part 
of his comment follows: 

"at'f balls have different character- 
istics and the small, heavy ball has to 
me shown auite new ones. My flvst 
drive jwlth one of tihem lesulted In th« 
ball flying close to the ground. 

"It did not get up at all and had

if I wanted t6 «*t Mie bill td carrv 
I had to 'hit It ui>.' and after doing 
BO I rot It quite a Wng way, though 
'It flew like a cricket ball above fleW 
rather than a golf ball, which up to 
the present day has risen to quite a 
good height at the finish of its flight. 
"The btill In orf« of the drives Itad 
that low start and gradual rise which 
Is stfch a pleasure to see. ■«« T did 
not get one shot like that urttll I put 
down a lighter ball. The heavy ball 
feels much heavier on the club, and I 
found I Itad to put in a bit extra to 
get away; in fact it required mor. 
•hitting- than the lighter ball an.l 
for the ordinary golfer I can ■'-■< v'-,uW

They may refuse to admit that he Is en- 
titled to any special credit for that 
advance, but this Is the way wltii poli- 
ticians. The fact rehiains that co- 
incident with his accept;;nce of the 
premiership, settled conditions were In- 
troduced into provincial politics and as 
soon as he had an opportunity to de- 
velop his politics, a period of pros- 
perity unexampled In the h'story of 
Bfltifih Columbia began. Of this new 
and prosperous British Columbia, Mr. 
McBrlde stands before the world as the 
representative, and ho always plays the 
role In a manner that leaves nothing 
to be \?Ished. Even his critics will ad- 
mit that the province lisver lofeftS any- 
thing from the manner In which he 
speaks for It whenever he Is called 
upon to do so. 

Mr; McBrlde can hardly fall to be 
Inspired on his return to his field of 
work with evten a stronger and more 
optimistic spirit than has characteriz- 
ed him In the past. His previous visit 
to the Mother Country , ikerved as a 
stimulus to his political aggressiveness, 
we mean In the matter of policies and 
the vialt BOW happily concluded can 
hirdly fall to have Impressed him more 
deeply than ever. It has been his great 
privilege to See his native province ad- 
vance to a foremost place in the es- 
teem of the British people, and his 
soul would be dead indeetl If It did not 
led the iipllft of such a great fact. 
and If hip ariibltlpn" to serve his coun- 
try were not flrcd anew. 


The movement for the establishment 
of a library for the Chinese In this 
eit>' Is interesting of Itself, but it Is 
even more interesting when we think 
of what It impJleii- There are gi^owlnff 
up in British Columbia a number of 
Chinese youths, of whose intelligence 
and natural ability there can be no 
finest Ion. The', are studious, industri- 
ous and sober. They know the value of 
money anU are early tatight the im- 
portance o[ ;ier|nirl:ij,' proprTtv. Tli<:y are

rights of citizenship, shall the denial 
extend to tlie third generation? These 
fire (luestions that will have to be set-

not urgent, but they win become so, 
and when we record what is being done

Greater details vecelvcd from J-iondon 
tnan were available In the telegrams 
first sent out, show that there was. If 
there is noi now, a serious revolt In 
the Unionist ranks against the leader- 
ship of Mr. Balfour. At the dinner 
given In honor of the Karl of Hals- 
bury, Mr. Austen Chamberlain was ac- 
claimed as "our future Premier." and 
he seems to have accepted the desig- 
nation without a sign of protest. Lord 
Rosebery has made a very earnest ap- 
peal to the pe»>r5 to c»«a»«o * line of ac- 
tion which he says can only lead to 
furtlher hiimlUatlon and Impotence." He 

Let the leaders of the forlorn hope 
protest as strongly as they can. That 
Is one o^ the few remaining privileges 
left to the Peers. Lot them resolve, 
when the swing of the pendulum 
places them In power again, to con- 
struct a strong -and efficient second 
Chamber, but let them not by a mis- 
taken idea of courage bring dow'n 
upon their country, their party and 
themselves even jrreater calamities, 
than they have already to endure. 

Tihe Times in an article specially ad- 
dressed to Lords Halsbury, Mllner and 
Selhornc, and Mr. Austen Chamber- 
lain, told them that they "have no 
power of any kind except the power to 
damage, if not to break, the party to 
which they belong." Tliere is no doubts 
that the scene In the House of Com- 
mons, when for the first time in Hls- 
toity the Prltrt«s Mlnteter was r«f used a 
hearing, has done Irreparable harm to 
tlie Unionist party. The break that 
has l>een created can 'hardly ever be 

Lord Selborne, whOBC) name has been 
mentioned. Is looked .ipon by some as 
a successor to Mr. Balfour. He Is 
son of the eminent Lord Chanpellor 
Selborrie. and succeeded to the title on 
the d»ath of his father in 1895. He 
Is now In his fifty-second year. He was

years before he succeeded to the peer- 
age, and was for a time Under-Secre- 
tary for the Colonies. 

pleted its analysis of the election pros- 
pects and has reached the conclusion 
that in Ontario each party can count up- 
on 24 seats with'talnty, Which leaves 
38 doubtful. The new Issue raised by 
reciprocity and' the entrance of new 
candidates into the field renOer the 
situation a difficult one to estimate cor- 
rectly In the opinion of the^Star. 

The Canadian Northern Railway 
company has at present actually under 
contract 1,823 miles of railway In Can- 
ada, and as soon as the location sur- 
veys 111 British Columbia are completed 
the mileage will be Increased . to 3,215. 
This development Isi remarkabjie. It 
means that before th*" close of the pres^ 
ent year tihe company will have under 
construction a mileage nearly if not 
quite equal to one-sixth Of the pret[ettt 
railway mileage of Catiada.

An exhibition of British grown cotton 
was recently held in London, and the 
results were so satisfactory ae to Rive 
good ground for the belief that In a 
short time Britain will be Independent 
of the American supply of this very 
necessary product. The cotton produced 
Is from the West Indies and the Niger 
country chiefly. Cot to i{- raising would 
afford a great atlmfllus TO the develop- 
ment of the African poaisesslons of Bri- 
tain, and oi>en a valuable market for 
British manufactures. 

■yesterday Great B»ltaln, the l.'nlled 
States and I'Vaiice Jtdned in an agree-

differences by arbllradon. This Is an 
event of vast Importance. It Is one of 
th« greatest trlufriohs of civilization. 
It is full of promise for the future. It 
is a fitting prelude to great centennial

.vernarles of the days when the trooua

The Naval agrecmcni. i>rlnted in the 
Colonist yesterday, makes clear two 
fundamental facte. One of them Is the navies of .Anstralla and Can- 
ada shall remain nn<lcr Ho- exclusive 
.■■oniroi of the Eovernmente of those 
countries, and the other Is that these 
navies may or may not he placed under 
the control of tlie .VdniiraUy in tim" 
of war. inir evening contemporary 
speciUcally denied that the latter was 
, ,, Kn ihf. casio, which shows that our 
contemporary is not sufficiently care- 
ful about its flenlals or is not as well 
informed as an apologist of the I-aur- 
ler government ought to be concerning 
the policy of that government. 

To our inind the weak point of the 
agreeiB«nt Is 'hat the ships of Canada 
and Ausfralia do not of necessity com- 
bine with that of the United Kingdom 
to form an Imperial Navy. They may 
do so In case of war, but they also 
may not do so. The Colonist la as great 
(., sticker for autonomy as any one. It 
believes that without local autonomy 
there can he no lOniplre, hot II Is un- 
able ti. see how llils prlnlcple would 
have been in any way imperilled by an 
agreement that in time or war there 
.should only be one navy entitled to fly 
the White Ensign, and that of this navy 
the ships built and maintained by Can- 
ada should automatically form a part. 
\\'e do not suggest that In the event of 
war Canada and -•V.ustraila. or either of 
them, would refuse to put their ships 
at the service of the Crown, but we do 
not like the formation of an agreement 
which implies the possibility that they 
might not do so. If Canada la to build 

One provision of the reciprocity 
agreement is alread,: In force,. ..namely 
that relating to the importation Into 
the United States from Canada of pulp 
and paper manufactured trom |^i^bcr 
cut upon lands not under any ceatric- 
tlons as to the place of manufacture. 
This Is by virtue of a TreasUrj?' iijrdfer 
issued at Washington. The slgnlnfir of < 
the Bill deiclarlng the agreement in 
force was somewhat spectacular. Pres- 
ident Taft had bought a goiti pen for the 
occasion, which after using, he gB've to 
Secretary Knox. I^e and the Secretary 
posed specially for the ' photographci^n 
as the slgnj^^ure was fj^ffised to the' 
Bill. It Is unlikely that there will be 
any special poslnc if the Canadian elec- 
torate repurtlat< i ahsactlort. 

^^'e must really ask our evening con- 
temporary to be more careful. It de- 
votes the greater iiart of a column to 
nn attemotod refutation '.f a, .staiemont 
which ii aiinhuifs lo ihc I'olonist, 
namely that "When the I'omlnlon kov- 
ernment lool< over .Ksqulmalt we were 
told that a foic would he maintained 
equal to that .susiained by the British 
government." What we did fray was 
■When the fanadian governmcnl took 
over the garrisonlnp; <,f this station, 
we werp ttdd that a force would be 
inainiainerl c((iial I ri that kept here by 
the Mrlti.tili government." Possibly our 
contcniporar,\ may not know the differ- 
ence between a fleet and a garrison, 
iiuT rno7,t people «ct. 

It is seriously proiiosed to do away 
with the words: 

"v- oilf ourid torjr poliiicM, 

occurrlncr In the .Vallonal Antheni. 
What's the matter with these v.'ords. 
.Some might feel like snyiiiB "confound 
all politics," but at present Wf arc only 
Invited to ask for llie confoundinK of 
the poll tics of those who are enemies 
of thp King. Then why make a change 
thai may Involve the two folfowlng 

'On Tliee Oiir hop.eH wfe fix

These are the finest lines In the whole 
Anthem, and next to them come those 
which remind (lie King that he holds 
ofTicc conditionally, for we ask thst he 

".\nrt ever give ub cause 
To sing wllh hearl and voice,

The rhyme may be cxeirahlc, but the 
sentiment Is as old an the days o|^ the

slve party has come to the fore again 
and la not agitating tb build a Chinese 
library. A letter to this effect appeared 
m yesterday's Issue of the Colonist, 
and Lau Nu, who is one of the brightest 
and most intelligent young business 
men of the Chinese comtnunity states 
that a good deal of Interest was felt 
among the Chinese over the scheme and 
that one prominent merchant alone had 
promised to contribute the sum of 
Jl.OOO once the arrangements were well 
under way. Letters are being sent re- 
apectlvcly to Mr. Andrew Carnegie and 
Mr J. D. Rockefeller, asking for their 
financial support. These letters point 
out the great benefit the library would 
be to the Chinese community. They 
were further asked to communicate 
with Llm Bang, manager of the Bank 
of Vancouver and a member of the Con- 
soiidated Chinese Benevolent associa- 
tion for further information on the 
matter. Mr. E. H. An^lerson, of the 
Mew York pObllc library will be also 
written to for a |st of too«»'«^"«^*, '"

ter« aw to »>« desjmtched Immediately 
and after the Progressive Party has 

heard from Mr. R^'=\«'«"*r,f,"t ^.l", 
Carnegie on the subject a petition will 
be sent to the Chinese goverBinent to 
which all the local Chinese merchants 
will be asked to sign their names, it 
is hoped to be able to build a separate 
library building, but taUlng this, quar-

It is only three months since the

members have shown t'^^J^f^^^^;.^^ \l 
thoroughly sincere in their d<^«'re )<.

At the time ''t the coronation tne

Vancouver Province. 

There is undoubtedly a strong feeling 
In Canada against reciprocity on na- 
tional and on Imperial grounds. In ad- 
dltion the bringing into force of the 
trade arrangement entered into between 
' the government of Sir Wilfrid Laurler 
and that of President Taft of the Unit- 
ed States will work a hardship on many 
sections of the cotmtry. On the other 
iiand It is urged that the proposed 
_».,s>r.^flnt. If carried In*" effect, would 
greatly benefit the farmers of the 
prairies. Whether or not it would is a 
debatable question but for years the 
western farmer has been educated Into 
the Idea that It would mean additional 
dollars and cents to him, until now 
some people assume that the people of 
the three prairie provinces are a unit 
on this question. Those who -are In the 
best position to Judge the feeling In 
the northwest and Manitoba, say that 
this is far from the correct view. Some 
of the strongest men in the prairie 
provinces are out »atly against the 
policy. There are many reasons to sup- 
port this view. The farmers of the 
northwest are the people, who of all 
othws in the British ISmplre. would 
gain most from British preference and 
the farmers of the northwest are intel- 
ligent enough to see that with recip- 
rocity there would be an end to any 
hope of the Imperial idea ever becoming 
crystallzed into a fact.— Kamloops Stan-

Bend a Solid Phalanx. 

The fight ip on. The government has 
«issolved parliament and will appeal at 
one" ♦" "^^ o«-"t"le 'n the qucslli-n of 
reciprocity without waitin^: for redis- 
tribution. This is little short of crim- 
inal to the interests of the west. U » 
well known that the result of redistri- 
bution will be to increase the repre- 
sentation of the four wester;, prov- 
inces Tl-ls Applies particularly to 
Munltoba and British Columbia, for 
there has been change in the repre- 
sentation of these two provinces since 
the last census taken ten years ago 
In the meantime the population of both 
provfnces has been growing by leaps 

Cheating the West. 
As a result of the mad haste of Sir 
Wilfrid Laurler to hold an election be- 
fore the people grasp the full meaning 
of the reciprocity agreement the west 
is to be cheated out of Us proper rep- 
resentation. There was no necessity 
for a September election. The gov- 
ernment could 'have prorogued or ad- 
journed the house and called It to- 
gether again early in October, when 
the census figures would have been 
completed. Only a short session would 
have been refjulrod to pass a redistri- 
bution bin. and the west would then 
have been given the extra seats to 
which it was entitled. 

But no. Sir Wilfrid saw the hand- 
writing on the waU. He saw that re- 
ciprocity was not making the "hit" 
Jie thought it would make ln__the west, 
and he believed he wouM be sAfelf tff 
keep the seats in the maritime prov- 
inces than to give them to the west, 
which is rightly cntitlcl lo Ihtm on 
1h« score of population. 

■\nd so, the representation to which 
she 5s rightly entitled is to be with- 
held .Mherta for another four 
vcars just bor.iuse a government which 
ha-; betraye.l U.p west at every turn Is 
afraid to delay going to the country 
for another two months. At the hu^,. 
lest tlm. .-^ thG ye,.,r th- business, of

Sometimes a sister or a mother can

that Is not pi.hslbbj is It not better for

ly written an article deprecating the ef- 
fect of the growth of tne teachlnu of 
women In the public schools of this om- 
tlnenf. Her point of view is that poli- 
tics, taking the word In a good sense, 
cannot ■ie taught to boys by p.Msons 
who take no part In the government 
of the country. .She does not hint that 
the growing lad should look to hts 
father for instruction In civic duties 
and take from him the spirit In which 
they are to be performed. This is one 
of many instances that might be men- 

Is this point of view a correct one? 
Does the modern father leave to his 
wife and to the female teacher me sole 
care of his children? If It Is so. It Is 
Indeed unfortunate. Boys and perhaps 
even more girls, need a father's guid- 
ance, control and affection, 1^ his 
chitdren a father aiinuiti b* liie ocbI 
anu wisest of men and unless It Is so, 
there is a great want In their lives. But 
In Victoria, at least so far as there Is 
outside evidence to show, there Is n" 
want on the part of the great majority 
of fathers of pride and affection to- 
wards their children. On holidays hus- 
bands seem to take their full share of 
the care of little ones^ One needs only 
to look at the school children to see 
that they are well provided for. May 
we not btelleve that the love and con- 
fidence of children In the homes is 
given to the fathers who tn thousands 
of cases mlust deny themselves many 
pleasures to provide so generously for 
them. It Is good neither for womer nor 
children that the sacrifices of fathers 
shall be unappreciated or the strength 
of their intluence undervalued. We may 
ha;ve ootifldence to believe that Car*- 
•dlan iJoys win learn fwm their 
f«,th«r8 to be true and loj-al citizens; In 
this lies our only hope of becoming a 
great nation.

aidered it expedient to travel In meiCs

Bear SCUk 
It is very unfortunate that at thla 
BeoBOii of thr ycst, U has bccn found 
necessary to raise tne price of milk. 
There la nothings that poor people find 
it so hard to economise In as milk. If, 
as is stated, the demand for ice cream 
has helped to make the price of milk 
higher and the supply less, the rentcdy 
is in the hands of fhe citizens. Ice 
crcim. in this clin»ate, is a luxury, not 
a necessity. Children are the chief 
consurners of this delicacy. Ttie prob- 
ability is that the boyu and girli* 
would be quite as healthy without the 
Ice cream cone bought at the corner 
grocer's or- the confectioner's. But the 
baby needs good milk and plenty of It 
and BO, for that matter, do older chil- 
dren. We all know that the expenses 
of the dairymen arc high this dry 
weather but then grass Was plentiful 
during the winter and our spring was 
longer tha» usual. We pay more for 
milk in Victoria than in any city In 
Canada and nowhere do the vendors 
have leas Interference than hiftrti. This 
matter is one whtch^ concerns ' every 
family but especially titose who are in 
poor circumstances.

A Pension 
There is scarcely anyUlilng so com- 
mon or 80 little valued as a match and 
yet scarcely two genera.-ons have 
passed away since tlie invention of the 
safety match. This fact is recalled by 
a 'a«MpBtcb from I^ndon which says 
that ft pension of the very modest sum 
of f 50 a year has been granted to the 
daughter of the late Dr. George Gore. 

This great iuv'*«ilii(ir «.«* dhetalat died 
<inly tdo years a.go at the age of elghty- 
tn.i. Upon his patient investigations 
iiiul .-xperlments with phosphoriis mo 
based the safety • match and upon 1 "• 
researches in electro-metallurgy ai. 
i.a«(t»<l nickel-plating. iSnormous ior 
tunes have been made by others from 
Ur. Gore's discoveries but he himself

of £6,000. Kvir, (ills 111" "M mm. h-ft

in tho nnal he was unable to hold his 
advantage. Joe Tyler of Spokane having 
defeated Mr. Barclay of Duncan rather 
easily. is In the seml-tlnals with 
Messrs. Khodes, Vancouver, tmd Gar- 
rett and roulkes of this city. 

The best match of the men's doubles 
was that In which Green and Baker of 
Vancouvei- irlun-.pacd over Ornwal! .ind 
Pearson of Kamloops, 8-6. 3-6. 8-6. As 
will be noted It was a fight right 
through. Cardinal and Rhodes, tho Van- 
couver partnership, and Foulkes and 
Tyler, the Vlcteria-Spokane star part- 
nership, were successful also. The lat- 
ter are the favorites for the tourna- 
ment honors. 

Few are venturing any prediction as 
to the likely winner of the ladles' sin- 
gles, the ladies' doubles or the mixed 
doubles. Tn these classes there arc quite 
a few contests on today's card, neces- 
sitated owing to the large entry and 
the necessity of bringing them within 
range of the finals. Miss Rlckaby s vic- 
tory over Miss Mclvor of Duncan. 6-7. 
6-1, 8-1, was one of tho notable fea- 
tures m the singles. In the doubles 
Miss Ross and Miss Mclvor had a dif- 
ficult task to defeat Mrs. Croxr Baker 
and Mrs. Langton and In the mixed 
there was another good battle when

To see all the sports, it will be neces- 
sary for those Interested to leave by the 
outgoing train In the forenoon. Owing 
to the length and the variety of the 
competitions provided by (he programme 
It has been found necessary to call the 
ojiening event before the special I'sn ar- 
rive. But 4II the regatta, and the 
greater part ot the Held attractions, will 
be deferred for the convenience of the 
crowns looked ror from tnis city. Thus 
those taking the excursion will be sure

In view of the fact that the chief 
awards have been displayed here and 
that a list of the races, both on the

wish to enipliasijit! one competition of 
special Importance. It Is that In which 
the oarsmen of .Sliawnlgan will be pitted 
against those of the James Bay Athletic 
ABSOciaiion for a iiauuBuiVic cha...T,nC

Wouldn't be a very nice prospect would it? It would be 
^till worse, if ?ome master mind had never conceived the idea 
of Fire In>urance. Hefore that fire meant desolation and total 
lass. Now, thanks to Fir.^ Insurance, -nc niav fed --rurc m 
the protection it afford-. 

Perhaps vou have never given Fire Insurance the con- 
sideration it deserves. Yet surely c^rvy fire must remnid you 
of the great risk you run through not havn,^- your prr-pcns 
insured. I u.-,t think this over. Is it not better to feel secure ui 
the protection of Fire Insurance, than to find, when it is too 
late thatybuf ^rdpef ty has-been swept- by -fke and .your .Iqs^. 
has'been a total one? We think you would sooner have the

of Insurance up with you.

MINERS AhE opposed 

rBRNIE. B. C. Aug. 3-— At a meet- 
ing held last night at Michel the miners 
passed a similar resolution to that 
adopted by the Gladstone union here, 
turning down the chairman's recom- 
mendations as reported to the minister 
r>r Iflhor. 

A meeting held this morning at Hos- 
mer re«uU«l la the same n-tlon belnsr 
token there. 

Another meeting is to be held at Cole- 
man tonight at which It Is expected the 
miners will do the same. 

The uncertainty of the report of 
Chairman Gordon, coupled with the 
clauses added by Mr. McLeod. seems to 
f <h^ refusal of the niln-

schedule she Is due to open at Nlagara-

that the proposal to resume negotiations

the dual report of Chairman Gordon and 
Mr. McLcod will not be endorsed by the

the two wings would become necessary

If Adam had only used a little more horse sense, "before 
the fall," the chances are we would have all had a better time 
of it in this world. 

Don't You Imitate Adam 

The time to get in and buy Victoria property is right now 
•T3ef9re the fall." Dfe^ yWire^iUze that there is a 200,000.000 
bushel wheat crop in our Middle West and that nothing short 
of an earthquake can damage it now? Do you realize that 
this wheat will sell at about $1.00 a bushel. Do you reahze 
that this will mean an inrush of settlers with pockets full of 
ready money and that Victoria and Vancouver Island will 
get the largest share? Do you realize that values are lower 
now than they will ever be again and that if you buy wisely 
now youcan make big profits this fall?

Spokane was afloat, under her own

of Dollars Steamers 

Tihe new steamer Robert Dollar, built 
on the Clyde for the Dollar line, which 
is to be one of five vessels, the other 
four registered at this port, to be trans- 
ferred to the Chinese flag and operated 
by the new Chlno-Ajnerlcan Steamship 
line, left London on Wednesday to 
bring a cargo of jgten*tal merchandise 
to. North Pacific ports under charter to 
Henry Lund & Co. 'Advices received 
by TOail from Peking state that Robert 
Dollar Is at the Chinese capital com- 
pleting arrangements for tihe establish- 
ment of this line. The correspondent 
of the Tokyo Asahi says that although 
the Chlno-American line has been 
brought Into being with Chinese offi- 
cial assistance there Is much strong 
opposition amongst the mandarins in 
high places against the new enterprise. 
Till- .inpanese correspondent states Chat 
ili.y .Miii.sider Mr. Dollar is endeavor- 
ing to dispose of his vessels at higher 
I)rices than anticipated. 

The Japanese view of the proposed 
line Is set forth by the Chugai Shogyo,

which says: "As a result of (tip Amer-

List. July It. 1»11. 
France— The latest reports are very 
optlmlsilc, and point to a yield of 
about. 320.000.000 bushels, against 263,- 
000.000 bushels In iSiO. Karvest ti&s 
commenced in many districts, and the 
quality promises to be very good. 

Germany— The latest ofJlclal report 
Indicates an out-turn of about 136,000.- 
000 bushels against 142.000.000 In 1910. 
The weather has recently been very fav- 
orable and the quality promises to be 
better than last year. 

KuBsia — The weather continues very 
hot in the Volga districts, very great 
damage has been done and the yield Is 
expected to be very small. In most 
parts of the empire fairly good results 
are expected, and If there has been no 
particiilar decrease in the area sown, 
compared with lust year, a relatively 
large yield of wheat may still be gath- 
ered, even If seme IB per cent smaller 
than last year. 

Turltey — The area sown Is reported 
to be much larger than last year; enn- 
ciuions generally have been favorable, 
and the yield promises to be an excel- 
lent one

NEW YOriK. .N!iK. 3.— The «tock 
market today made attempts to 
recover from Us lieuvliios.s of the pre- 
ceding .session, and some ground was 
regained, but the weight of the selling 
movement In the final hour drove 
prices to the lowest level of the pren- 
ent movement. There was marked 
weakness in the coppers. Southern 
railway Bhares, and a number of minor 
industrials. Oossip was busy with the 
causes for the reversal in the iu«.rk6t. 
Rumors assigned the short selling to 
the operations of a western grain 
trader, while the liquidation was attri- 
buted In part to the precipitated ov- 
ferings of a local operator who Is cui- 
rently reported to have suffered 
vcrely on the bull side of the 

Among Incidents operating to re- 
strain bullish activity was the furlhci 
weakness of Standard Oil on th« 
•ciirb," the stock making a d.rliiie ot 
25 points on unusually heavy offerings- 
News frum WaHhlnytoii that the at- 
torney-general was soon to submit to 
the tica-sury department hla report 
dealing with an ln<iuiry Into the 
n!a( ! on oT » — ■• ■'<AJ ' ii rl tU !S fuinp»n r ' 
cently orgaiiiieii «tr^ -lii a^lj'.;r.rt to on'? 
of the largest national hanks. aiHu 
furnished food for reflection, as did 
despatches from New England, tcUlns 
of tho indefinite shutting down of per- 
haps the largest cotton mill In the 
Fall River district 

Heaviness in the copper shares was 
partly explained by the export leports 
presented by several leading compamoB. 
An, off set to these adverse factors wa* 
found In cables from London which 
staled that a possible basis of agree- 
ment In the Moroccan situation had 
been reached. 

The bond market again followed tho 
.stock market in Its Irregularity. Total 
sales (par value) 12.035.000. Uniteo 
States bonds were unchanged on call.
